I’ve been thinking a lot about support lately… As in Who’s on YOUR support team?
Specifically, I’ve been counting my blessings at my good fortune. I am lucky to have a great support team in place.
And, by great, I mean those people who you know you can call at 3 o’clock in the morning if you have a disaster. You may never need to call. But if you do, they’re the ones who are there for you. That great.
I’m pretty sure my support team know who they are. I hope they know how much I appreciate them.
Even more, I hope they feel the same way about me.
Who’s on your team?
That’s not a rhetorical question. I’d love to know. But, even more importantly, I’d like you to know. Because these are the people that matter.
These are the people who pick you up when you stumble. The ones who believe in you, even if they don’t necessarily agree with your choices. They are the ones who celebrate the wins with you. And, they are also the ones who don’t judge if you fail.
“I want to be around people that do things. I don’t want to be around people anymore that judge or talk about what people do. I want to be around people that dream and support and do things.”

And, it’s when you make a big change in your life that it becomes even more important to know who’s on your team.
Big change is a big deal. It takes work. There’s often risk involved. Sometimes it means you are taking a path less travelled. It can be controversial. And, that means there’ll be nay-sayers.
It’s good to know who’s got your back.

Choosing to take a significantly more proactive role in my health was a big change for me. It involved considerable adjustments to both my diet and lifestyle.
And, with the benefit of hindsight, I can say it was made so much easier because of my support team.
